Recall of Del Rey Flour Tortillas

Del Rey Tortilleria, Inc., of Chicago, is announcing the recall of its flour tortilla products, according to the Food and Drug Administration (FDA).

Flour tortillas of all sizes are included in the recall (White Flour Tortillas; 6″ Tortillas de Harina; Burritos 2,3, and 4; and 8″ Fajitas). All packages have the name “Del Rey” on the label, and one of the following date codes: Oct/17/07; Oct 20/07; Oct 24/07, Nov/4/07, Nov/10/07; or Nov/11/07.

A recent illness in Wisconsin schools, in which students experienced nausea, abdominal cramps, and vomiting, have caused state officials to tell the FDA that they think there is a connection between the torillas and the school illnesses. However, they do not believe the problem involves microbial contamination. Del Rey is recalling the products as a precaution while the investigation continues, although they are not certain their products caused the reported symptoms.

No other Del Rey products are included in the recall.

The recalled products were distributed nationwide through grocery stores and food distributors.

If you or someone you know has purchased the Del Rey products included in the recall, stop using them immediately and return them to the store where they were purchased. If you have medical symptoms you believe may be related to the recalled flour tortilla products, contact your physician, and call the Washington personal injury attorneys at Bernard Law Group, 1-800-418-8282.
